March 4 – 7 is the Time
The Prez Sez:
As your President and Editor, I hope that you have had a Very Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah, with your families, and I hope that you all will have a Wonderful, Happy, Healthy and Fulfilling Year in the year 2010 to come. At this stage in the game, we all must count our blessings and be thankful for what we have.
I am delighted to note that as of this writing, we have 52 persons registered for our next Reunion in March. This is very exciting to know that so many of our members are planning ahead and making plans to be together with us for this memorable event. Among our participants, we already have a commitment from 4 of our Holocaust Survivors, who plan to be with us to tell their stories and to become acquainted with their Liberators, and meeting others of their peers for the first time. I am sure that there will be others joining us as time goes on. If we can have 100 or more at this reunion, it will tell us that we surviving “Old Hickorymen” still have a lot of spirit within us, and determination to join with the crowd as often as the opportunity presents itself.
If you have not been to one of our Reunions, you just do not know what you are missing in the way of Friendship and Camaraderie, that we all knew way back 65 years ago. It has grown even better ! Don’t miss out on this one !!
Frank W. Towers, President
